Christmas classic to air in December.
NBC announced its yearly December date for the holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life. Frank Capra’s timeless story will be shown in December on Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24 at 8 p.m. EST.
The network made the announcement as it rolled out much of its holiday schedule, which includes an array of specials.
In 2006 “It’s A Wonderful Life” was selected as the American Film Institute’s top inspirational movie of all time by a jury of 1,500 film artists, critics, and historians; and Internet Movie Database (IMDb) users rated it 24th on the list of 250 top-rated movies.
